Summary: Played DCS and Arma 3 with it and I have to say it is pretty nice to have. Precise enough to give you great control over your aircraft, which is a good thing, though with DCS I sometimes had issues with accidentally activating the afterburner. Easily fixed with default keys but you guys might want to add a little zone on the slider that shows where the burners would activate in FSX, DCS, etc.
Only buy if CD-software is included if no Internet

Summary: I am very happy with my purchase of this joystick. The low cost combined with four axes of movement, a hat switch, and a dozen programmable buttons makes this a truly great stick to use on a flight or combat sim. I love the precision with which I am now able to pilot my helicopters in Arma 3; and the for Flight Simulator X, it's a truly awesome control system for those just getting into simulators.
Summary: Every year. That about covers it. Only buy new from reputable stores/sites! Great stick and much more stable than anything in its class. Button placement, triggers, (initial)accuracy, price are all very good. Really wish it was a bit more rugged. Throttle control can be a bit iffy and/or the 1st to go. The buttons usually hold up ok, but the stick gives up after a year (hopefully) of hard use.
Summary: This is a very good stick for gaming, not to based on flying, not to based on shooting. So it makes it a good all round gaming stick. Some of the side buttons are a bit unresponsive, but is very easy to set up and calibrate.
Pros: Bang for buck, this stick works for what I intended to use it for. I'm not much in the lines of flight sims in particular, but i intended to use this with Arma 2, Planetside 2, HAWX, and Mech Warrior Online. So far, no complaints with Arma 2 or Planetside 2, and HAWX everything is smooth and accurate. Makes flying Heli's and Reavers a cinch. The built-in throttle and rudder were the selling point for me. Also has a lot of buttons. if you want full control in most game...
Cons: There's a bit of a deadzone in the middle. I'm not sure if i can change that with the included software as I haven't looked that far into it. It's not that big of a concern, but it limits what you can do sometimes. I have a tough time keeping my reticle on target in Mech Warrior. I feel myself tugging the vertical a lot, almost like a ratcheting motion, just so i can get lined up for a shot that may or may not connect. I'll likely stick to M&K unless I decide to fine ...
Summary: Good price, delivered on time. Easy set up. Using with WIN 7, 64 bit and FSX. I plan on keeping it as spare now that I've used it awhile. I have an old MS force feedback I like much better but buttons are beginning to stick on it and I needed another stick for comparisons. This Logitech stick has one anoying problem. It centers very forceably. A real airplane has no center, it's center is established by the airflow over the controls which is how my Forcefeed stick works.
